    Default Radial Tunnel Injection - Does anyone know if there is an injection

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know if there is an injection code for the radial tunnel. I only see carpal tunnel.

    what about 20526- corticosteroid injection in carpal tunnel?
    I would rather suggest this as no documentation about tendon to code 20550-20551.
